We are partnering with the RideArrangers’ Schoolpool service to assist families that are interested
in carpooling, walking, biking or riding the RTD bus with other families to and from school.
RideArrangers is a program of the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) that has
been helping families in the region for nearly 20 years. RideArrangers’ Schoolpool service is free
and there is no obligation to participate.
The service works as follows:
Using RideArrangers’ secure website, parents register to find and contact interested Horizon
families in their area. Parents can optionally share their email address and phone number with
others to make it easier for other parents to contact them; addresses are never shared.
Families are only matched with Horizon families. Optionally, parents can use the website to
find nearby families from other participating schools.
Comments can be added to indicate special requests or preferences (i.e., “can provide
morning rides,” “student is in afterschool activities,” “currently carpooling,” etc.).
The service can be used for planning full-time, part-time, special event or emergency trips.
It is a great resource to meet nearby Horizon families for other reasons such as temporary
transportation needs, play dates, baby sitters, summer BBQs, etc.
The more families that register, the more likely families are able to find good matches.
Registration is free and your information is secure. Here’s how to register:
Go to ridearrangers.org
Click “View participating schools”
Select Horizon High School from the list of schools
Follow the step-by-step registration instructions
(Horizon High School’s enrollment passcode: HAWKS)
Contact RideArrangers at 303-458-7665 or firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
We assume no responsibility, but provide this information for your use. RideArrangers does not run
background checks, confirm valid drivers’ licenses or assess insurance coverage on participants.
Potential users are advised to screen participants to their personal satisfaction and check their own
insurance coverage for carpooling to assure they are covered under these voluntary arrangements.
No drivers, vehicles or insurance are provided.
